Book of the Week: Into The Water
In the last days before her death, Nel called her sister. Jules didn’t pick up the phone, ignoring her plea for help.
Now Nel is dead. They say she jumped. And Jules has been dragged back to the one place she hoped she had escaped for good, to care for the teenage girl her sister left behind.
But Jules is afraid. So afraid. Of her long-buried memories, of the old Mill House, of knowing that Nel would never have jumped.
And most of all she’s afraid of the water, and the place they call the Drowning Pool...
Fresh off the success of her debut novel The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins is back at it again with her new thriller, Into The Water. This new title is written with the same page-turning propulsion as its predecessor as it explores the threat of long-buried secrets and the dangers they pose to our lives now. Set in a small riverside town, this is the story of two estranged sisters and the secrets they keep.
“Wondering if Into the Water could be as good as The Girl on the Train? It's better. A triumph.” Clare Mackintosh, bestselling author of I Let You Go
